If you care about your eyesight and the care of your eyes, I would never recommend this Dr. In my opinion all this office cares about is MONEY. The patient care takes a backseat to the actual treatment. They herd you in and out of the office like cattle and all they want is the money money money. I am now left with very little vision in my left eye and the right isn't much better. I went in for cataract surgery and was told you will love the upgraded lenses so that you wont have to wear glasses anymore. I paid $7000 out of pocket so that I wouldn't have to ever wear glasses again. I was excited until the day after the surgery. I told them something was wrong over and over and kept getting pushed around to every doctor in the place and noone would help. They just kept telling me wait it will get better. It didn't get better just worse. Whatever you do find someone else.

I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes. Dr. Panzo was clear and concise as to what would happen and the likelihood of the success that I have had with the surgery. I always felt comfortable and cared for by him and his staff. I feel that he did the best possible for my astigmatism and near-sightedness. My eyesight now is better than I have ever had! Both during and after the procedures, Dr. Panzo kept me informed of my progress and cared for my needs. I am very happy with the outcome.

I recently had cataract surgery on my left eye. The results wer probably more than expected by me. Dr. Panza is an excellent doctor . The outcome on my first eye cataract surgery was exceptional. Dr. Pantos bedside manner, personality, and knowledge put me at ease. I would highly recommend Dr Panzo to anyone needing excellent Eye Care

Dr Panzo is one of the kindest surgeons I have ever known. He truly cares about the best for his patients. He may run late from time to time but he will equally spend the time needed to deal with what is wrong. He is well worth the wait.

I took my 98-yr-old Mom to see Dr Greg Panzo after visiting 4 other eye doctors, getting no relief from Mom's itchy, irritated eyes. He immediately found they were inflamed & prescribed the appropriate treatment where she felt better THE NEXT DAY, after months of bother. He & everyone in the office were so welcoming, professional and kind; the visit was a delight, not a typical office appt. We drove from Orlando to Mt Dora to see him & have become a regular patient. I recommend him 200%!

Recently, I had cataract removal with intraocular lens implantation by Dr. Greg Panzo. I am extremely pleased with the results. I no longer wear glasses, and colors were never clearer. The entire experience was wonderful. Dr. Panzo explained the entire procedure beforehand, fully answering all questions. The surgery center was new, spotless, and very pleasant. The surgical staff were both courteous and comforting, arresting any nervousness on my part. The procedure itself was painless.
